That's kind of mysterious; I know that Branko said that the 0.25
tarball passed all tests on win32.

You misunderstand the tests. The whole reason the tests continually
compare tress is to exactly *avoid* the issue of ordering. :-)

So the errors you see aren't about ordering; it about the fact that
the expected and actual trees have different structures. It's the
standard test failure message. Take a read through
subversion/tests/client/cmdline/README to understand the big picture.

Are they the same tests failing all the time? Or is it always changing?

We have an 'svn-breakage' mailing list -- you should subscribe.
Branko has nightly build/test boxes that mail their results to that
list. He used to test win32 nightly, but hasn't been doing so lately.
